Über mich

Hallo zusammen! Ich freue mich, daß ihr meinen Blog gefunden habt. Und ja ihr lest RICHTIG - ein MANN im Bastelreich. Ich habe schon seit Kindheit gebastelt und mit 4 Jahren einen Zeichenwettbewerb gewonnnen. :-) Seit dem habe ich vieles ausprobiert. Heute sage ich auch nicht mehr Basteln sondern für mich ist das ein Kreatives Gestalten. Hi everyone! Hooray - you found my blog. YES it´s true - a man in the world of craft. I do handcraft since my childhood and with 4 years I won a draw contest. I tried and done a lot of things. My favorite is still doing cards. P.S. Sorry about my "not perfect" english - I´m Austrian! ;-)

Hi peeps!
I was asked from Rick St. Dennis Tuto Blog to do a color tuto as guest designer!
Oh - a great honor!
They want me to show you the color technique with the black outlines.
Ok - let´s start!
First of all you need an image from Rick St. Dennis! ;-)
More needs: a very smooth and even paper and colored crayons (a must is a black and a white one and if you color skin then a flesh tone too), a small brush
It´s not important to have expensive art pencils. When I tried out this technique I started with crayons for kids.
Now I do this with Caran dÁche Pablos. But I mix it with others too - like the flesh tones.
I´m working step by step and between I use the brush to take away the dust that it will not smear the white paper.

With the black pencil I start the face. I do all the printed lines. Here on the pic you could not see very well.
For the skin I use 5 colors.
A brown, a redbrown, a apricot and 2 flesh tones.

I always start with the darkest tone.
With the brown I go over the lines witch I did with the black one. Then the redbrown over the lines I did before and a little bit more as you can see on the pic.

Next is the apricot to color more skin - don´t forget to go over the colored lines you did before.
Looks spooky doesn´t it? LOL

Then I use a flesh tone to fill the white areas and blend to the other colors.

For the lips and the rouge/blusher I use a red this time. The cheeks are colored very lightly with the red and blended again with the flesh tone. (cheeks is the most difficult part for me*gg*) If you want highlights on the lips you have to leave small areas white.

And then I go over all black lines with the black pencil again.

First part is done. Now she doesn´t look scary anymore does she??

I´m working step by step the whole image. Everytime start and finish with the black outline.The colored areas starting with the darkest color tone. And don´t forget to take off the dust with the brush!

Next part - the rest of the skin

Now the hair
Here I use 3 different browns, a red and a white. It´s not necessary to use 3 tones but 2 will be fine.
Is start again with a part doing the black outlines.

To fill in start again with the darkrest tone. Go over all with the next tone and leave a very small part uncolored. Over this you go with your white and blend it and it will look like highlights.

Do now the hair step by step like this. I mixed the red in too.

For the eyes same again
black, 2 blue tones and black again

For the dress I use greens - same technique

For the jewels and the border I used a yellow and and orange tone

For the background I use 2 blue tones again

And finally FINISHED!

When it´s finished I use a hair lacquer to "fix it". The sureface of the colored motif get´s totally plain. You can not see any pencil stroke and it looks like printed on a highclass paper. Don´t ask my why - I don´t know!

I hope you like my turorial and you will try it out!
And don´t desperate no one is born master. It´s all exercise and practice.
